Rosy, sweet, and flirty

28 February 2016

I am such a girly girl and I think it shows in the way I dress up and present myself to the world, the way I conduct myself, and even the way I manage this blog. (◕‿◕✿) And now, before the girliest of all months come to a close, I would like to write about my latest girly indulgence as well as my favorite way of doing my makeup.

A couple of days before Valentine's Day, a special delivery came for me.

A few products from The Body Shop's British Rose range
Shower Gel, Exfoliating Body Scrub, Instant Glow Body Butter, and Lip & Cheek Stain presented on a vintage bike on a patch of grass and those flowers? What a way to capture my heart, The Body Shop!

I used to not care for floral scents because I was all for fruity fragrances, but it seems like my preferences have changed as I got older. I love layering the three and I can't get enough of how timeless and feminine these products smell like! I'm not sure if this range is limited edition or not so I use these sparingly and to make special occasions even more special. I do hope it stays, though. I would definitely want to get everything else in the British Rose line, especially the Eau de Toilette!

And now here was my FoTD for this year's Valentine's Day that I love doing different versions of when I'm feeling sweet and flirty. Here is my current favorite combo.



I wanted something that would balance and complement my colorful hair and floral dress, and I think it did the job well. Here are the products I used on top of my regular moisturizer and sunscreen:

L'Oreal True Match Blur Cream as primer, L'Oreal Lucent Magique Light Infusing Foundation in N7, L'Oreal Mat BB Veil to set, Ellana Eyebrow/ Eyeshadow Quad for my brows, Ellana Blush Duo in Kitten/ Peach Passion, Banila Co Prime Eye Primer, Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara in Black, Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm, Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher in Sugar Glam to highlight, OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Laguna Beach, and The Body Shop Lychee Blossom Eau de Toilette
Aside from my OFRA Laguna Beach Liquid Lipstick, my favorite product I used that day was my Happy Skin Eye Am Here to Stay 24H Gel Pencil Eyeliner in Plum. It did stay on without smudging the whole day! Amazing! I need a full-sized version of this.
I wore an old favorite before it gets too small for me to wear LOL
Aaand there you have it, folks! On regular [work] days I just go with my BB Cream-powder-lip balm and lipstick-eye brow combo but I do like making more effort every once in a while. On dressier events I even go as far as contouring my face, heh.

How about you, what are your favorite go-to products for special occasions? I'm always on the lookout for beauty products to check out (in spite of my wallet's protests) so all recommendations are welcome!
